at the moment i think the metal looks very bright and monotone, although obviously it is a work in progress. I would have started with a darker metal, boltgun mixed with black but you could add a black wash to darken the colour[i don't think that looks as good usually though.

highlight the edges of the armour plates. it looks like you used regal blue so used enchanted blue or ultramarine blue, if you can do very fine lines then afterwards do the very edges white. Chuck some black wash over the metal, and maybe some brown/chesnut to give some rusty patches that breaks it up a little, but make sure you dont overdo it.

actually there is no regal blue in there, every colour in the tank is home made.

colours i used,
Enchated blue,
Litche purple,
Chaos black
Blood red
and Mythral
Ice blue
Skull white

most of the colours are at least a mix of 2 colours

That looks similar to a style used by my friend Wolf, a dark purple with white/blue lightening bolts. Looks pretty nice!

Nice, but like jigplums says, it needs highlighting.
